Being a fan of Tolkien, I always try to imagine what various places in his book would look like. Whenever I find somewhere like this, the Shire springs to mind..
The lovely Eskdale (valley of the river Esk), one of the western dales in the English Lake District National Park in Cumbria. Sparsely populated, mostly by farmers, surrounded by fells (hills or mountains) and very peaceful, this is a great place to base yourself for walks.

    Ever so beautiful. I hope I get that RAW thing done as well as you do it!
    In the meantime: my absolute must-fave!

  • Good morning Juergen and thank you..I find Photomatix is simple to use, more so than Photoshop. And I like the results..I like the gentle effect given by the default settings…
